Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo
if you've loved Megane-chan to Yankee-kun before, then you will also love this. Lol this manga is full of fanservice for fangirls and fanboys alike, and it's so damn funny on top of that

(A) Theme : Friendship/ Courtship/ Hatred/ Love
Show any Saiunkoku Monogatari character(s) expressing any kind of emotion, such as love, hate, jealousy, envy, joy, sorrow, etc. (It does not even have to be emotion towards another human … it can be towards an inanimate object, like Shurei's love of money! ); or show the characters in a relationship, such as friendship, courtship, kinship (brother-brother, brother-sister, father-daughter, etc.), rivals, mentor-disciple, master-servant, boss-subordinate, courtesan-client, and anything else you can think of!
Side-Note for those interested: This theme is inspired by a childhood game we used to play.
The origin of this game is unknown. The game was played as follows: The child would write down her/his own name, a

I'm gonna be talking about how I used to skip school to go home and play videogames, I used to do this a lot.

You know, the cool kids would skip school to bring their hot girlfriend home for some hardcore snogging. While kids like me would skip school, then go home to spend time rescuing Princess Zelda. My parents were really strict though, I was only allowed to play my 64 on the weekend and only an hour per weekday, I always wondered if they were actually Ganondorf's minions.

Taichi Mashima...Most Loved yet Hated Male LeadWhoah! After six months, I'm making a new journal entry! lolTaichi Mashima...Most Loved yet Hated Male Lead2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anyways, as you guys have noticed, I mostly post fan arts and even doujinshi of the underrated manga Chihayafuru... the anime season2 ended last month btw. And yes, for the first time, I became a true fan. A very obsessed fan of a manga especially with one of the three main leads... Taichi Mashima.
I was not so keen with the show at first, since I find a card game boring. But the story in season 1 is character driven so what can we expect... except to grow attached with them as the story unfolds...
I'm not too good with expressing my self in an essay form but I would like to share to you guys Tezaku's friend insights on the character I came to love, whom surprisingly have a lot of haters as well. Her friend was also recently hooked to this show so her thoughts below are all her own views and not in any way want to affect others view of the show.
Note, this was a discussion between them, so the flow is somehow similar to how o
Japanese 101Konnichiwa Minna san! Watashi wa baka desu! Watashi no shumi wa e wo kaku koto desu! Yoroshiku onegaishimasu! （＾Ｏ＾☆♪Japanese 1013 years ago in Personal More Like This
So okay some of you got jellin of my fine japanese language desu ne.
I thought of why not teach my lovely watchers speak japanese?
Okay let's start with the simple one. If you want your sentence to sound like japanese you need to put 'desu' at the end of each sentences. Now before we start using 'desu' let me tell you first what it means. It would be stupid if you're using the word that you don't know right? Okay the word 'desu' comes from the latin word 'Canius Femina' meaning bitch. For example I love you desu (I love you bitch).. Tehehe kidding aside. Okay the meaning of 'desu' is really hard to explain but basically it's a polite modifier or it can also mean " It is ", "Those are" , or "I am." or whatever.
Now that you know the word desu let's use it in a sentence.
Fuck you desu. V(=^･ω･^= )v
Fandom PainsSo I'm over on Equestria Daily yesterday, and they've got this discussion going where the fans have to think up their own episode ideas. And while a few people are taking it seriously and exploring new possibilities of the characters' personalities and the show's universe, most people are just coming up with the most disturbing self-gratifying shit. And without the slightest trace of irony, either.Fandom Pains2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was warned about the unsavory side of the fanbase when I started watching the show, but I figured "Oh, I can just ignore that, it's no big deal." But they're everywhere. People who draw creepy explicit fan art. Or write vicious hate-fics. Or rant endlessly about how Twilight having wings is somehow a travesty to all mankind. Or have disturbing unhealthy obsessions with side characters. It all feels like they're feeding into the brony stereotype, not because they genuinely like the show that much, but as if they're just trying to say "Look at me! I'm a grown man who likes

I will not be subjected to criminal abuseIts time for another story, do you guys want a story? I will give you one. This one is about my early days in the work industry and how you should always becareful and know your legal rights before you head in, you do not want to be subjected to criminal abuse without knowing. This happened a few years back, straight out of Design College, when I was still an 'Amateur Graphic Designer' as they like to call me. So I was searching online for jobs and found one that requires a Graphic Designer with artistic skills who can create original characters as well as making little icons and graphics stuff. I was like HELL YEAH THATS ME, so I sent them my portfolio, back then it had really unprofessional messy drawings and then a few graphic design works and photography bullshit pieces that I threw in here and there to show my 'range', I didn't have a consistant style and I had no idea what people wanted to see lol.

It can be any style! Not just limited to manga, it can be traditional or digital, which ever you prefer! Obviously no literature, as it doesn't contain screentone . . . .
It MUST be submitted to the contest folder called 'Ice Cream Contest'

How to Commission an ArtistI've been commissioning artists for a little over two years now, starting with site money on GaiaOnline and moving to dA from there. One thing that's hard for me to ignore is the number of artists who are concerned about being scammed, either because they've gone through that experience before or because the stories and warnings of it happening all the time proliferate. Commissioners have their own concerns about being scammed by artists. The simple fact of the matter is that it happens.How to Commission an Artist6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
However, I think a good portion of the problem is that many people who want to commission an artist have no experience doing so, and it's not as easy to find instructions on it as, say, how to draw anime eyes. That's why I'm making this guide.
It should be noted that while I mention commissioning through other websites now and then, this is meant as to general guide, and all of the examples are from deviantart.com. Also, this does not
Crying lolI promise not to talk like a weaboo anymore as it would seem several people are convinced that english is not my first language and that I am trying really hard to sound like I know english when I don't. I hate to disappoint you but I am just a dork. English is the only language I know and the the subject I excel in at school. I speak and write english fluently as it is the only language I speak; any other language variant I am at a loss for. I can read Japanese, I just cannot understand it...at all. It's fun to read the funny sounding words though. I also know a bit of spanish as I grew up in Southern California. Though I appear asian/pacific islander/more specifically dutch indonesian and am genetically, at least half of my genome at least - the other half is german, I am an uncultured American.

I've been on DA since 2005, so that's like...7 years? I'm not as talented as some of the younger artists, who draw wonderfully when they are only 16. Back when I was 16, I was only a beginner in digital art, and I've made progress and improvements rather slowly.
Now, I have 600k some pageviews and 15k+ watchers. I guess you can call me semi-popular on DA, and I've even got a small fanclub as well as a great number of people who liked RE:A, the first game I've completed.
Of course, I couldn't have gotten this kind of fame without you guys, people who appreciate what I do. I'm not a fanartist, I rarely have the time and dedication to read/watch popular manga/shows and I've always got an inferiority
